how large of tires with manual steering?
I used to be a Toyota guy but am now considering picking up CJ :-)
I'm looking at a specific 60's Willys CJ-5 with manual steering and little tires, and it drives nice.
My question is, would it still be decent driving with 31's? The largest tire I would ever consider are 33's, which I'm gussing would really need power steering for. But how about with new 31's?
Also, I don't really do rocky terrain, mostly sand and fire roads, and I'm kind of big guy so I know that'll influence the answer...
On a second note, I did a search and found the advancedadapters PS conversion kit, but at around $900 that seems too much for me on a stockish Jeep. Can it be done much cheaper should I want to in the future?
Thanks a lot folks! Brian.
